Brentford will play in the Premier League for the first time after winning the tournament final 2–0 against Swansea.
Evan Tony’s early penalty added To a shot by Emiliano Marcondes 20 minutes before play, Swansea, who halted his recovery with a red card for Jay Fulton, netted midway through the second half.
Tony has been influential with Brentford throughout this season, and although he didn’t make his best match on Saturday, he definitely played his part in what proved to be a comfortable win. A quiet first-half penalty kick got the ball rolling, while he almost scored again with great effort from outside the penalty area he bounced from the bar to the goal line.
Swansea rarely made a serious threat to David Raya’s goal, and much of it was due to the outstanding performance of the Brentford center back. The choice of these players was Ethan Pinnock, who dominated his duels with Swansea strikers, especially in the air. Man of the match.
Besides Pinnock, Henrik Dalsgaard was in control of the rearguard and did not lose a single duel. His discipline was also formidable as he never gave up a single free kick.
